  • Replacement of HFCs in Room and Mobile Airconditioners

CEEW in collaboration with Natural Resources Defence Council (NRDC) and Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development (IGSD) prepared a working paper investigating the economic and environmental impact of replacing HFCs in room and mobile airconditioning. This paper explores the business case for Indian room air conditioning companies to “leapfrog” and phase down unsustainable technologies based on chemicals with high global warming potential (GWP) called hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) and moving to a future based on climate-friendly refrigerants and energy-efficient equipment designs that will cool Indian buildings and vehicles while reducing dangerous climate change.

  • R&D, Innovation and Manufacturing Competitiveness

This project, for the National Security Advisory Board, identified the supporting R&D and innovation infrastructure that will be necessary to increase India’s manufacturing competitiveness, especially in areas such as cleaner energy technologies.
